Coursework Exercises: Civil Aircraft Design (Bizjet)
Both the FPS and the SI units are worked out in the examples. Sizing calculations require the generic engine data in order to obtain the factors used (see Section 10.11.3). The Bizjet drag polar is provided in Figure 9.2.
Requirements: TOFL 4,400 ft (1,341 m) to clear a 35-ft height at ISA + sea level. The maximum lift coefficient at takeoff (i. e., flaps down, to 20 deg, and no slat) is CLstall(TO) = 1.9 (obtained from testing and CFD analysis). The result is computed in Table 11.1. Using Equation 11.7a, the expression reduces to:
W/S = 4,400 x 1.9 x (T/ W)/37.5 = 222.9 x (T/ W)
Using Equation 11.7b, it becomes:
W/S = 4.173 x 1,341 x 1.9 x (T/ W) = 10,633.55 x (T/ W)
The industry must also examine other takeoff requirements (e. g., an unprepared runway) and hot and high ambient conditions.
